5 things...

We are finally settling down into a school routine. It was difficult at first and I'm still not on board with the time that they go to bed, but I guess they're too old to be put to bed at 7:30 anymore. I spend most of my afternoon carting kids around and that's okay. I once read an article about a mother that wouldn't let her youngest get her driver's license for the longest time, just so she would have kids in the car. I know that will probably be me too....sorry Ryan!

1. It seemed as if the trees turned overnight. They are lovely, even though it's all a blur somedays.
2. My husband has to have rotator cuff surgery. I mention this only because I want you to all feel sorry for me. Enough said.
3. I need to buy more mums.
4. Pumpkins are in short supply around here due to Hurricane Irene. All that rain that we received did not help the pumpkin crop.
5. It's been hot here the last few days. I was really pushing back at Fall, but now I think I'm ready. Bring on the cooler temperatures!

Have a great week everyone!

I love that white pumpkin! I haven't been out to get pumpkins yet this year, but if the hurricane affected the cropin your area it probably did in mine too, I'm thinking I should get them sooner than later. Thanks for the tip!

Well, don't look for those cooler temps in NYC this weekend. It's supposed to be 80 on Sunday. I'm kind of over it. A little.

Can't wait to see you on Monday!
